Updated libwacom packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The libwacom packages contain a library that provides access to a tablet model database. The libwacom packages expose the contents of this database to applications, allowing for tablet-specific user interfaces. The libwacom packages allow the GNOME tools to automatically configure screen mappings and calibrations, and provide device-specific configurations.

Bug Fix

Previously, the Wacom Stylus pen was not supported on Lenovo ThinkPad X220 tablets by the libwacom database. Consequently, the pen was not recognized by the gnome-wacom-properties tool, and warning messages were returned. Support for the Wacom Stylus on Lenovo ThinkPad X220 tablets has been added and gnome-wacom-properties is now able to calibrate the tablet.
Users of libwacom are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
